Dark Nebulae Dark Lanes And Dust Belts from the Author: Antony Cooke. There are 'voids' obscuring all kinds of objects in the cosmos. Voids may be within an object, or between an object and us. Dark Nebulae, Dark Lanes, and Dust Lanes looks out into the deep sky at those apparent dark regions in space, which are among the most compelling telescopic destinations for amateur observers. One famous example is Barnard's dark nebulae - those striking dark clouds set against the background of stars in the Milky Way. But there are countless other less well known examples. These dark regions are often ignored altogether or commented upon only briefly in astronomy books, and it is all too easy to overlook the treasure trove they offer the observer. Dark Nebulae, Dark Lanes, and Dust Lanes is a great source of practical information for observers. Such voids may be successfully observed using conventional observing methods, but they are often far better seen with technologies such as light-pollution filters, CCD video cameras, and image intensifiers. This book explains the optimal ways to observe each object in detail.

Bright And Dark Nebulae from the Author: Richard Wilds. Here the reader will find the first extensive listing of bright and dark nebulae for the entire sky in one easy to use resource. The author will take the reader on an observer friendly tour of the night sky in easy to handle amounts, divided into the well known constellations that will allow observers the opportunity to become acquainted with each object discussed. One of the revelations provided is that any telescope will work in this effort as long as the observer is able to obtain a significantly dark observing site. Small rich field telescopes work better on the many large faint objects that are discussed, while larger telescopes can then apply their light gathering abilities on the smaller faint objects that are discussed. One of the advantages of the book is that the observer will gain the all important knowledge of how to apply instrumentation to gain the best views of each object they wish to see, since the ultimate goal of the present work is to help each observer to be able to see each of these formidable bright and dark nebulae for themselves.
